PROVO CITY HALF MARATHON

I got up early and headed down to Provo to run the race. On my warm up my left, lower calf/achilles flared up again and really hurt coming downhill on the warmup. It hurt enough that I stopped and walked. I was very worried I wouldn't be able to race. I sat on a rock and worked/massaged the calf for about ten minutes, and then walked down and changed my shoes and dropped my bag off. Once the race started, I felt no pain at all. So, I guess I just need to really focus on keeping the muscles loose to avoid the pain I've been having this week.

The race was pretty uneventful. I was out in front and Justin Park just behind me. It stayed that way for both of us throughout the race. It was good to see Justin, he's a good man and a great runner.

I went quite easy/conservative the first two steep downhill miles and then got to work. I was probably too fast on miles 3-8, and slowed down quite a bit the last five miles as a result. I won the race in 1:06:34, the joy of winning still somewhat swallowed up in last week's failure.

After the race my stomach was killing me! I felt really sick, which I did not feel at all during the race. I felt too sick to cool down. This lasted for about five hours after the race! Not fun.

Splits: 5:04, 4:59, 5:03, 4:56, 4:50, 4:57, 5:10, 4:58, 5:09, 5:10, 5:21, 5:16, 5:19 and 4:56 pace for last bit.
